RECALL - 34 collections of youth beds by Lea Industries recalled due to fall hazard

The following recall notice is from HSW: 34 collections of youth beds by Lea Industries recalled due to fall hazard

Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Authority report of a recall involving youth beds by Lea Industries. The side rail can break, especially when a sharp downward force is applied to the top of the bed. If the side rail breaks, the mattress and slat pack become unstable and could fall.

See HSW Products tab for specifics on the affected items (including additional photos).
Health Canada and Lea Industries have been made aware of one incident in Canada in which the side rail fell but there was no injury. The US CPSC is aware of twenty-two incidents with two injuries.

The affected products were sold at various retailers in Canada  and U.S. from August 2008 until March 2013.

Corrective Action:Consumers should stop using the beds. Consumers should lift up the mattress and write down the purchase order and item numbers listed on the label on the inside of one of the rails.

They should input these numbers on the company’s website (under the Recall Tab at the bottom of the page) to verify if they have affected side rails. If they do, they will be prompted to register for the recall. Lea Industries will ship them free replacement side rails along with instructions on how to install them.
